This picture is so fabulous, I think we need to zoom in on this ecstatic little girl...
My casual Superman/Supergirl outfit is just one blue Capezio dance leotard, some dark skinny jeans, a child's cape left over from Gbear's superhero birthday party, and a pair of red boots. I printed the Superman logo on photo paper and safety pinned it to my leotard.
Gbear told me she wanted to be a black cat for Halloween. I asked her how she wanted it to look and she wasn't really sure, so I drew her this and asked what she thought:
She went totally nuts for it! So I spent 30 minutes on the internet. I tracked down some furry arm and leg warmers, the awesomest cat ears ever, a tail (which I had to make a belt for out of a tote bag handle and some velcro, but that's okay), and some fleece lined black leggings and top -- the ladder of which ended up being more of a dress, but I think she liked that even more. Each piece arrived separately, and Gbear got more excited with each package in the mail. The last one got to our house the very day of Halloween! Perfect timing -- like a Halloween advent calendar.
|Gbear's instruction: "A plain one, to show our outfits!"|
|Doing some kind of clapping, snapping dance.|
So anyway, we headed over to my sis-in-law's house, where Gbear would be trick or treating with my wonderful sparkplug of a niece Maddie, who was dressed up as a rad little doctor.
Trick-or-treating was unseasonably warm but VERY RAINY!
I'm supposed to be motioning to the girls tearing down the sidewalk, but they'd already run out of the frame!
Needless to say, we were happily soaked. So here's a parting shot that Monkey Daddy sneaked of me drying out afterward.
It was a pretty fantastic evening, rain included. :)
